What is Own Voices and why does it matter so much? Own Voices is a movement! It started as a hashtag to identify diverse books that are written by members of that same group. Diverse books mirror our world, with a special focus on amplified stories about historically excluded identities and groups of people. By reading Own Voices books, we ensure that we enjoy good and rich stories about diverse characters written from authors who share that same identity. For more information visit littlefeminist.com.
